SB Friedman advises municipalities, universities, health care institutions and other land owners with regard to the best means to maximize the value and stewardship of real estate. Our services are based on the concept that successful projects result from the synthesis of economic potential, physical capacity and client/community goals.
We work closely with property owners to achieve these potentials through a number of services, including: market analysis to identify potential uses, directing teams of physical planners to evaluate site capacity, working with stakeholders to establish community or client goals, economic feasibility analysis, developer solicitation, and deal structuring. Because we are among the leading experts in public development finance and public-private partnerships, we are able to maximize use of both public and private financing. Over the years, we have consulted on major town centers, transit-oriented developments and university-anchored projects.
As an active member of the Urban Land Institute’s Public-Private Partnership Council, firm president Stephen Friedman recently served as primary editor and author of Successful Public-Private Partnerships: From Principles to Practice, a new publication from the Urban Land Institute. The report explores the challenges and opportunities associated with creating effective public-private partnerships, and offers a toolkit of best practices.
